UAE Sadu weaving on Unesco's intangible heritage list

Sunday November 27, 2011 09:19:50 AM, WAM

Abu Dhabi: UAE's Sadu weaving has become the new addition to the Unesco's list of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity, said the Abu Dhabi authority for culture and heritage (ADACH).

The traditional Sadu is a form of weaving done by women in the rural communities in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for producing fine furniture and decorative accessories for camels and horses.

Sultan Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman of ADACH said: "The efforts to register 'Sadu, the skills of traditional weaving in the United Arab Emirates', in the UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity that needs urgent safeguarding, has borne fruit".

The Bedouin men slit wool of sheep, camels and goats, which is then cleaned and prepared by women. Wool is spinned and then dyed and woven on a loom as the case with the plain weave. The traditional colours include black, white, brown, beige, and red. Distinctive geometric designs are employed when spinning wool.
